Indian Saffron, Turmeric has been used in South Asian countries and India as a spice and house medicine for centuries; it is widely recognized in modern herbalism for its beneficial effects in many health-related issues.
Turmeric Oil is a yellow to dark-orange liquid with a warm, fresh, spicy, somewhat woody aroma reminiscent of Ginger and Galangal. Turmeric Essential Oil has two powerful ketones, Turmerone and ar-Turmerone. In aromatherapy, ketone molecules are excellent solvents and are highly volatile - this is why many ketone-rich oils are used to assist skin healing and are often considered top notes in natural perfumery. Both these components have also been shown to help our bodies with the absorption of Curcumin, a strong antioxidant and the main compound actually found in raw turmeric root and turmeric extract.
Turmeric Oil is excellent to help ease minor pain and inflammation, especially when it comes to managing rheumatism and warming cold, painful joints. It may also help with detoxifying the body, boosting the immune system, and reducing allergic responses. Along with being a remarkable anti-inflammatory and analgesic powerhouse, Turmeric Essential Oil is great for supporting the digestive system and can help reduce fluid retention. For cosmetic applications, Turmeric Oil can reduce the appearance of blemishes and help protect the skin against environmental impurities helping promote a clear, smooth, and radiant-looking skin. In natural perfumes, Turmeric Root Oil is used to lend an interesting warm and mildly spicy note.
Emotionally and energetically, Turmeric Essential Oil stabilizes and balances. It is also believed to help with depression and ease mental stress. Turmeric essential oil warms the heart and attracts positive energy.
